FACT: the APA - once heralded by gays for their proclamation of a gay gene (before genetics could even tell us what genes made up eye color) recanted their statement in 2003 saying they had based their claim on nothing but politics and no science. Now they classify homsexuality as a mental derangement. Who in their right mind would ever want a mentally deranged person leading or closely associating with his children as friends? These people need help - not hate - but they need to be recognized for their condition and not integrated into normal societal acceptation until cured (proven possible).

Lee,

The APA does NOT say homosexuality is a "mental derangement".

Here is what they actually do say -- "Therefore be it further resolved that the American Psychological Association opposes portrayals of lesbian, gay, and bisexual youth and adults as mentally ill due to their sexual orientation and supports the dissemination of accurate information about sexual orientation, and mental health, and appropriate interventions in order to counteract bias that is based in ignorance or unfounded beliefs about sexual orientation"

they -changed- that classification not because of scientific proof,but due to political influence.

A Boy Scouts of America national board member, James Turley, who is also global chairman and CEO of the accounting firm Ernst & Young, recently said he "will work from within to seek a change" to overturn the BSA policy that bans gay Scouts and leaders. But is Turley working on his own initiative, or has the White House prodded him with perks and favors?

Is it a coincidence that Turley came out swinging against the BSA's century-old policy to ban gays from leadership and that he has such close affiliations with the pro-gay Obama administration?

Is it a coincidence that Turley and...
